We are pleased to announce the release of Impala ODBC v2.5.43. The release has the following fixes:
Resolved Issues in Impala ODBC 2.5.43
 The driver does not use the keytab mapping files as specified in the UPN Keytab Mapping File configuration option.
The driver cannot file ODBCMessages.xml files in folders with names that include Japanese characters.
 The driver treats the string “NULL” as a null value.
 The driver inserts explicit “CROSS JOIN” in some queries for Impala versions higher than 1.2.1 and lower than 2.1.0, resulting in some inefficient queries.
